COVID-19 Operating Practices

23/03/2020 17:00

In an effort to protect the safety & wellbeing of our customers and staff, Blakemar Briars will be making a few changes to the way we operate:

  • Our workshop is no longer open to the general public for sales or repairs.
  • You can still place orders via this website.
  • You can still contact us via email or telephone to order pipes, tobacco and accessories.
  • We shall still be sending out goods in the post.
  • You can still send pipes for repair in the post as usual.

Instead of sending out parcels every day, we will attempt to minimise contact by making just one or two trips to the post office each week.
This may result in a slight delay for some customers, so please place your orders early if you want a top up of tobacco.

For the next few weeks we will be on hand to take telephone, email and website orders in the mornings only.
If you are going to telephone, please do so between 9:30 and 12:30.
You will still be able to leave a message at any other time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding, stay safe!
